I failed my first driver's license test (something about looking both ways...whatever), but damn, at least I never physically injured the driver's ed instructor:
A driver's education instructor was run over by one of her students and pinned beneath the car for 15 minutes, officials said. Two cars driven by students collided on the DeKalb County Schools driver's education lot, then one of the students backed into Patricia Erwin, running her over. She was hospitalized Friday in stable condition and underwent surgery for multiple broken bones. Erwin, 64, who has taught driving for 20 years, was working with the students on a drill that included pulling forward and backing up at slow speeds, said Kal Kelliher, the district's driver's education coordinator.
